Account Setup Instructions

Gather the following information

Gather the following information prior to setting up your GO!NotifyLink account on your device.  You may need to consult your GO!NotifyLink administrator for the mail server name and authentication password.

Mail server name

This is the external address or domain name of the GO!NotifyLink server.  (It is best to use a domain name, as opposed to an IP address.)

Email address

Your email address on the groupware server.

*Authentication
Password

A password generated from the GO!NotifyLink Enterprise Server identifying you as an authorized GO!NotifyLink user.  Consult your GO!NotifyLink administrator for this password.

 

*Important!  During the account setup process, TouchDown will prompt for “Password.” 
Though the field description reads, "Your Exchange password,” you must enter the Authentication Password assigned to you by your GO!NotifyLink administrator. 
Consult your administrator for this password or log into the GO!NotifyLink Client Web and select, General > Device to view the stored password.  See Accessing the GO!NotifyLink Client Web.

 

Setup Your GO!NotifyLink Account on the Device

Since the GO!NotifyLink server has the ability to communicate via the Microsoft ActiveSync protocol, you use the Exchange ActiveSync account setup procedure on the device to create your GO!NotifyLink account.  Though field descriptions may be labeled “Exchange,“ keep in mind that you will always enter credentials associated with your GO!NotifyLink account.
